Jim Philips' impending retirement from his long running "Philips File" on 104.1 marks the end of an era for a radio host who often pretended to be above the fray of local politics and presenting his show as "just entertainment." 

In reality, he often worked both on and off the air to "afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted." His show will be missed and I wish him a great retirement.

Joel Hunter, the longtime pastor of Northland Community Church, is stepping down at age 69. He has been one of the more inclusive voices in the region, seeking to bridge the divide between evangelical Christians and other faiths as well as those with other viewpoints.

Orlando is the diverse community it is today in part thanks to his efforts.

Here's wishing him well in his next endeavors.
